Sondex Modular Downhole Tractor
The Modular Downhole Tractor (MDT) is a wireline deployed system used to push passenger logging tools and perforating guns into difficult well profiles. The MDT contains a highly efficient (97%) and powerful electric motor that drives the tool. Signals from the MDT and associated sensors are compressed downhole in the electronics cartridge for transmitting to surface enabling the logging engineer to monitor various parameters in real-time and to control the MDT with precision. A surface-controlled switch, within the electronics cartridge, isolates the MDT from its passenger tools.
